Al & Bea’s Mexican Food is a tiny burrito joint in Boyle Heights that has been around for 50-years.
Good food keeps customers coming back. Edgar Johnson says, "As a little boy I would put 50- cents together to get me a burrito and maybe a drink. I’ve been coming here since I was 12 years old."
Al and Bea opened their tiny burrito stand in front of their house in 1966. Bea remembers not having too many customers in the beginning.
She says, "For about the first 4 weeks, it was real slow. After 4 weeks, forget it!"
The word got out fast that Al and Bea's has really good food. The restaurant has received numerous awards and recognition for having the best burritos in Los Angeles.
This week, Al & Bea's is celebrating 50 years and the couple is also celebrating 64-years of marriage.
You can join the celebration on Saturday 11/12/16 at 11:00am.
Al & Bea's is located at 2025 E 1st St, Los Angeles, CA.
